Jake Zyrus’ mother Raquel Pempengco appealed to the singer on Facebook to visit his ailing grandmother Thess Pineda, who is currently confined in the hospital due to a brain aneurysm.
“Please pray for her ... She's in the ICU right now ... (napatiran ng ugat sa ulo). Masama man akong anak sa tingin niya, wala akong magagawa nanay ko pa rin siya. Sana magparamdam ang paborito niyang apo, ngayon siya kailangan nito,” she wrote on social media.
It can be recalled that Raquel did not have a pleasant reaction when Jake Zyrus’ life story was aired on Maalaala Mo Kaya last year.
However, his grandmother Thess sided with the singer at the time, saying she supports Jake on his decision to divulge the hardships he has gone through as a child.
“Tama lang yan, sige sweetheart isigaw mo’ng sakit na nararamdaman mo na yan bata ka palang dinanas muna ang kalupitan na yan. Huwag kang matakot nandito akong magpapatotoo niyan,” Lola Thess said in a viral social media post.
She later sang with Jake at his comeback concert at the Music Museum October of 2017.
Despite his misunderstanding with his mom, Jake said he hopes to work out his relationship with Raquel.
